The effect of soft nanoparticles morphologies on thin film composite membrane performance

Author affiliations

Abstract

Well-defined branched and densely cross-linked soft nanoparticles (SNPs) were synthesized and incorporated into a poly(ether-b-amide) (Pebax®) matrix to form the selective layer of thin film composite (TFC) membranes. The fabricated TFC membranes exhibited distinct gas separation abilities. These results reveal the effect of SNP morphologies on the membrane performance. This study may provide insights and novel strategies to fabricate highly permeable membrane materials for carbon dioxide (CO2) capture.
